The first room we were in had no shower head and was dirty. The next room was filthy too. The bathroom ceiling was dusty and nicotine stained. The towels were dirty from sitting in the cruddy room. Curtains shredding, old bedspread, dirty tub, dirty light switches. Ugh! There was a large, neatly tied garbage bag next to the soda machine.... More

Room was very clean and spacious. Room had sliding door to the outside (great to let fresh air in). Breakfast was decent (waffle maker, fresh fruit, bagels, cereal, etc). Hallways to room need updating. Better than the Econo lodge and Super 8 near by.

However, service was great the people are welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area. I want to mention one person above the rest who greeted us with a smile and kindness every day of... More

I booked this stay on Priceline and they gave it a two star rating. It was the most runner down place I have ever stayed. Stains on the walls, peeling wallpaper, rips in the bed sheets, ceiling was falling in, and more unkept, unclean, unmantained. I should have known by the low price.

After the drive from Ellicott city/Columbia Maryland. The front desk was very helpful. The pool was great. The price was great. I would suggest larger pillows for king beds. Had a good time. I would come back.

Hey, I understand that when you pay less than $60 for a room with a king sized bed, fridge and microwave that you're not going to get much, but I more unimpressed than usual...there was a big tear on the sliding door curtain that was patched with duct tape, trash behind the bedside table and underneath the bed, the bathroom...

There were people partying very late at night and staff did nothing about it. 2am. I wouldn't return here as the bugs were gross and the hotel was not clean. The shower stall... More

Hotel is over priced. Bugs everywhere. People partying and screaming at 3 am. And the worst part is, after I checked out, they charged me for a whole nother day! When I called, they refused to refund the charge, stating they should have charged me for cleaning. Maybe that is because I stayed 2 weeks and never had them clean... More
